Shad - TSOL [2010]

>> Saturday, 29 May 2010

Artist: Shad
Release Title: TSOL
Date Of Release: 2010

Known for his impressive wordplay and introspective lyricism, Ontario-based rapper Shad debuted in 2005 with the self-made When This Is Over that he paid for by winning a talent competition. His underground buzz maintained, but it was not until 2007’s The Old Prince that his body of work would be recognized as a bigger level.

He received two nominations for the LP in 2008 from the Juno and Polaris committees, though victory eluded him. Shad substantially stepped it up both lyrically, as heard on lead single “Yaa I Get It,” and contributor-wise for 2010’s TSOL. The album features Broken Social Scene’s Lisa Lobsinger and Brendan Canning along with singer Justin Nozuka and rapper Kamau.

LMNO And Kev Brown - Selective Hearing Part 2 [2010]

Artist: LMNO And Kev Brown
Release Title: Selective Hearing Part 2
Date Of Release: 2010

The critically acclaimed LMNO & Kev Brown project Selective Hearing (Up Above) was a near perfect pairing of LMNO’s conscious lyrics and vintage Kev Brown production, earning the duo early Grammy nods in 2008. On May 11th, the duo will release Selective Hearing Part 2, their highly anticipated follow-up to their 2008 classic.

In contrast to their first album, which was recorded by sending one another beats and vocals via e-mail, Selective Hearing Part 2 was recorded together at the Technicali Lab in Southern California during Kev Brown’s various trips to the West Coast. Entirely produced by Kev Brown, the two also decided that it was only right to have both LMNO and Kev rapping on each track, as opposed to their first album where Kev was only featured on a handful, vocally. Upon completion of the album, the duo enlisted a barrage of guest emcees from both sides of the coast including Chali 2Na (Jurassic 5), Declaime, Kenn Starr, Hassaan Mackay, Kaimbr, Mr. Brady (Deep Rooted), and Trek Life.

Speakerbox Presents The Underground: May 2010

Roll on the month of May, and a drum roll please for Cubbiebear. Cubbiebear is a rapper out of Baltimore, Maryland. Truth be told, he has a sound which won't appeal to everyone. It isn't your typical jazz rap or anything like that so if that's what your looking for, then you won't find it here. But what you will find is production which is very creative, very atmospheric, and very distorted and somewhat trippyish at times. This guy who pulls no punches. He delivers some sharp lyrics which echo nothing but brutal honesty and emotion.

He hasn't had some new material for a while but the good news is that he is currently working on a new project called 'Force Back To Sleep' with no set release date.

Joe Kickass - Let Me Introduce EP [2010]

Artist: Joe Kickass
Release Title: Let Me Introduce EP
Date Of Release: 2010

Let me introduce Joe Kickass, a young and eager cat with many talents and a great passion for everything oldskool. Frustrated by most of today’s hiphop, Joe drops the accessories and takes it back to basics. With him contributing ill illustrations to the artwork and composing on five of the six tracks, it's fair to say this EP proves that he's more then just your average MC.

With a full length album droppin' later this year, Project: Mooncircle brings you this debut release to let the world get acquainted with their newest addition. The beats are raw, gritty and drenched with soul and jazz influences. Joe tops them off with his raw voice, high impact lyrics and on point delivery.

Panacea – 12 Step Program [2010]

Artist: Panacea
Release Title: 12 Step Program
Date Of Release: 2010

Panacea is based out of the Washington DC area where producer K-Murdock, a Maryland native, has provided his fantasy hip-hop soundscapes for soul singers such as Grammy-nominated R&B artist, Raheem DeVaughn.

Emcee Raw Poetic, a long time resident of Northern Virginia who originally hails from Philadelphia, has been rhyming since the age of 14. His natural, almost conversational flow and signature storytelling lyrics fit perfectly with K-Murdock’s soulful and sometimes spacey compositions.

'12 Step Program' is the groups 5th album and only further cements their status as one of the best groups in underground hip hop.
